What is That Scandinavian Feeling? To me its like a warm and cozy hug, one that just makes you smile and feel happy. It makes your grey days feel better, your coffee taste even nicer and puts a smile on your face. If you have been following along on Instagram you might have seen my monthly #thatscandinavianfeeling post, as well as all the lovely images shared by people using the hashtag. It makes me so happy when I scroll though the feed and see all the beautiful moments, and I love getting to know everyone more through this little hygge community we are creating.
I have selected 4 of the images to share with you here on the blog, as well as a little quote from each about what That Scandinavian Feeling means to them. Its getting harder and harder each month as more of you join in, I’m starting to think I might have to do this more often.. Well anyway, here is this months collection!

“It’s about the small things in life. About that warm blanket on your sofa or the first cup of coffee when you wake up on a cold day. It’s about the morning sun when it hits the green plant in the corner of your living-room.”

“I find a rich cocktail of simplicity, minimalism and clever functionality in That Scandinavian Feeling. Its a genuine love for the natural, for durability and clear lines.”

“To me, That Scandinavian Feeling is about enjoying the little luxuries in life – lighting a beautifully scented candle, curling up under a blanket or near the fireplace to read, being surrounded by nature on a hike, time spent in the garden, or even a lazy morning testing out some recipes in the kitchen and sitting down to a slower meal than usual. I think it involves a calm peacefulness that comes from living in the moment. It is natural, lovely, and fresh.”

“To me, That Scandinavian Feeling is being home, surrounded by the people I love and by the few things that make me feel safe and calmed, like a hot cup of tea, a good book and a blanket. Oh and a candle burning. It’s everything I miss when I’m away. Every time I get back home after a couple of days abroad I instantly feel that ‘feeling’.”
I hope you join in and share your images on Instagram too! Its a great way for us all to get together and spread some hygge. So, what is That Scandinavian Feeling to you? How do you create a cozy environment in your home or where do you go to feel peaceful and calm?
